I haven’t read the whole thread @pdk42 and this might not be particularly relevant to you with the Mk3 but I did perceive a slight but noticeable improvement in image quality in terms of DR and slightly more room for processing when I had the EM1X compared to the EM1 Mk2
I am not too technically minded about processing and facts and figures etc and therefore cannot put my finger on exactly what had improved but I was pleased with the output I was getting from my jpegs and from results when processing them
I’m not sure whether the improvements I saw would translate to the Mk3 but assume that the latest mods would be common to both ?
Yeh, I totally understand. I really enjoyed the EM1 Mark II and the images were great. but the Mark III images just seem more satisfying. It just sems a little easier to get the results I'm looking for. Not sure why.
Also, the OP didn't mention Starry Sky AF. Maybe not something to upgrade over, but another small thing that adds up in the end.
The menu button is a bit of a pain, but much better than cameras that have the image review button there. If a button had to go left, the Menu button is an OK choice.
I wish the 2nd card slot was UHS II, That to me seems like a missed opportunity. The LCD vs OLED EVF I'm nuetral about because there may be performance readons that Olympus chose LCD deliberately.
The camera is blazingly fast. To the point where shooting my XPro3 has become some what annoying waiting for the camera to write to the card! The EM1 MIII is a millisecond, and the Xpro3 seems slugardly at 1/2-1 second write times. LOL!
